- 3 tablespoons white or yellow miso
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons mirin

- 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
- 2 cloves garlic, minced

In a large bowl, whisk together the miso, lime juice, mirin, olive oil, ginger, garlic and brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved and everything is well combined. Add in the shrimp and rub to coat evenly. Let sit 20 minutes while the skewers soak.
Build a charcoal fire for direct grilling using Kingsford® Charcoal and preheat to medium-high heat (about 450°F). Brush grate with oil.
